Petal Pizzaz

I'm home today, didn't go to school! I went yesterday, but by lunchtime I had had enough and came home. Put my pjs on and crawled into bed. Didn't wake up till 7 pm, had some soup and was back in bed by 9. I had already arranged for a sub today so I wouldn't have to get up early. I have this terrible cough that has made my throat raw and my voice hoarse. So my plan today is to stay very quiet and let my throat heal. The cough seems to have quieted down. I have a terrible back ache, that may be from laying in bed too much? Anyway, I plan to go back to work tomorrow. I am a Kindergarten teacher and the flu has been going through my room (9 cases so far) and the other Kinder classes as well. That is the risk we take to educate your children! lol.
We put our health at risk daily!
Before I got sick, I made this card and was saving it to post yesterday. But of course I never made it to the computer yesterday! It uses a wonderful set called Petal Pizazz. I have seen many cards made with the set, many a lot prettier than this one. But I am not willing to hand cut out the flowers!!!! This card uses Jan Tinks color combo ( Rose red, baja blue, apricot appeal, choc chip) and Lil Inkers paper choice ( Parisian Breeze Specialty dp). It's called "specialty dp" because it has a design like the designer paper, but is printed on textured cardstock to make it special. The "thanks" is from a set called Thank You Kindly, and I really like the swirls on the letters. I used another one of the jumbo brads, this time in chocolate chip.

So sorry that you've been feeling under the weather. My DS is in Kindergarten and I have to admire how the teachers do it. Everytime I'm volunteering I practically SEE the germs floating in the classroom.

Beautiful card. I love that color combo and your layout is stunning. Great job! Hope you feel better soon!

Oh so very very pretty. Love the color combo. The part you stamped is so pretty it looks like designer paper that I would buy if I saw it in the store! Hope you're feeling better very soon! Laura P
